THE GREENING OF UM: In honor of Edward T. Foote’s 20-years as president of the University of Miami, Foote (right, pictured with his wife Roberta ‘Bosey’ Foote) was honored in 2010 with the dedication of Foote’s Green, a swathe of lawn between the student center and library where he presided over commencements. Bosey Foote’s mission was to turn UM into a ‘campus in a tropical garden’ and supported the university’s John C. Gifford Arboretum, a collection of rare plants and trees. She also pushed to beautify the campus with lush landscaping.
